Telangana HC takes up Inter results issue, orders govt to re-evaluate answer sheets
The Telangana High Court on Tuesday took up a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) over the errors in the results of the Intermediate examinations that were announced last week and called it a 'grave disaster'. The court directed officials of the state government to file a detailed report by Monday, with a timeline for re-evaluation of the exam papers of all three lakh students who had failed.
The court was hearing a petition filed by Balala Hakkula Sangham (BHS), an NGO working for child rights, led by activist Achyuta Rao.
Speaking to TNM, Rao said that the PIL demanded that a thorough investigation be conducted into the fiasco and the re-evaluation of papers be free. The activist also demanded an ex-gratia for the families of students who had killed themselves since the results were announced.
